Censor Board in Trouble for D K Bose
By clearing Aamir Khan’s trouble for controversial song D K Bose it looks like the Central Board of Film Certification itself landed into troubles. Both the Censor Board and the Information and Broadcasting Ministry (I&B) are receiving letters from people everyday who are demanding an explanation over their decision to pass a song that contains such a word in its lyrics that sounds obscene when played in loop.
Now, I&B ministry has reportedly sent a letter to censor board and asked them to rethink about the decision. But, the CEO of the censor board, Pankaja Thakur, seems impervious of this as she said to a tabloid:
“The I&B ministry sent us a complaint that was filed on their website. And we have replied back. And yes, we have also received a few complaints from people. But that’s okay. We even received objections to Sheila Ki Jawaani and Munni Badnaam Hui as well.”
While Pankaja is in no mood to change her decision, it is revealed that a few members of board were never agreed with her decision and the clarification of the song was her sole decision.
“Parents are really angry with the song. It's a part of trailers that are screened in theatres along with U certified films, though Delhi Belly itself has received an A certification. It's also running on national television. Actually, the song did raise a few eyebrows within the censor board as well,” revealed a source closed to censor board.
Meanwhile, Aamir khan’s spokespersons are defending the song saying that, “DK Bose is just a name. Some people are capable of seeing abusive language in everything. It depends on how your mind works. We can’t help it.”
